Witness Creates Hits for Cosmopolitan.com in 2014

January 4, 2015

Witness filmmaker Andrew Lyman-Clarke did a lot of work for Cosmopolitan.com (A Hearst Magazines site), and had a number of videos “go viral” in 2014.  The first was an offbeat makeup tutorial in which Gene Simmons of KISS demonstrates how to do his signature rock & roll makeup on his daughter Sophie.

The video was featured on Good Morning America and Youtube Nation (the best of Youtube) in August.  The next viral hit came later that month with the video “Never Wait in Line For A Dressing Room,” shot guerrilla-style in SoHo using only iPhones.

In October, Lyman-Clarke edited a provocative three-part series which had been shot nearby in Columbus Circle.  When it was released, these “Sex Positions Attempted by Real People” caused an immediate sensation on Youtube, being reposted all over the internet.  Cumulatively, these three videos have almost four million views.

Looking forward to more successful collaborations with Cosmopolitan.com in 2015!
